Our Sunday School

Welcome, beloved brothers and sisters, in the name of our Lord, God, and Savior Jesus Christ. We warmly invite you to delve deeper into the rich tapestry of our shared Coptic Orthodox faith through the resources available on our website.

As members of the Coptic Orthodox Church, we are the heirs of an ancient tradition that traces its roots back to St. Mark the Apostle, who brought the Gospel to Egypt in the first century. Our faith is steeped in the teachings and practices handed down to us over centuries, preserved in our liturgy, theology, and pastoral traditions.

Our website aims to make these profound treasures of our faith accessible to all. Whether you want to learn more about our divine liturgies and beloved saints' lives or seek spiritual enrichment through sermons and biblical studies, our comprehensive resources guide you.

Our 'Sunday School' section provides an engaging platform for our children and youth to understand and appreciate their faith. With interactive lessons, activities, and stories, we aim to instil in our young ones the love for Christ and the Church.

We also have a host of community outreach programs for those looking to get more involved. These initiatives, guided by our faith's principle of love and service, provide opportunities to serve our neighbours and extend Christ's love to all.

We invite you to explore, learn, and grow in your faith. And remember, our Church is not just a place to visit; it's a spiritual home where you're always welcome. May the grace and peace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all.

The history of Sunday School

The tradition of Sunday School in the Coptic Orthodox Church has been a pillar of our faith journey for many generations. Although the formal concept of Sunday Schools as we understand it today was established in the 19th century, the essence of religious education for children and young people has always been at the heart of the Coptic Orthodox Church. Archdeacon Habib Girgis established our first official Sunday School in 1900, marking a significant era of religious revitalization within our Church. His emphasis on the value of Christian education brought forth a spiritual awakening, reinforcing the importance of Sunday Schools in nurturing our children's faith.

Today, Sunday Schools continue to play an essential role within our Church community. They provide a nurturing environment to imbue our youth with our faith's teachings and values, helping them connect with their heritage and identity and preparing them to become active participants in our spiritual community. Through Sunday School, the timeless wisdom of our faith is passed down from generation to generation, ensuring the preservation and flourishing of our cherished Coptic Orthodox tradition.
